Polk City Cosmetic Dentist on Why You Should Consider Porcelain Veneers

pretty woman proud of her smileDo you wish you could cover all of your minor tooth blemishes at once, instead of trying to individually address each tooth’s cosmetic needs? As a cosmetic dentist in Polk City, Dr. Hussong understands the frustration of trying to improve a smile that is marred by several blemishes on multiple teeth. Luckily, advancements in cosmetic dentistry have provided the means to transform your entire smile’s visage, and in the course of a total smile makeover, few tools are as valuable as versatile porcelain veneers.

The Challenge

While cosmetic dental issues unsightly by nature, the good news is that most of them don’t necessarily affect the health or function of your smile. Therefore, extensive dental work is not typically needed to improve your smile’s aesthetic value. Stains, minor chips, and odd spaces, among others, are common occurrences that can significantly diminish your confidence in your smile, but that can also be corrected with relatively simple procedures, such as teeth-whitening or dental bonding. Correcting several of these blemishes at once, however, can seem more daunting then only one or two of them.

A New Face for Your Smile

There are no one-size-fits-all solutions when it comes to your dental health; even the cosmetic aspect of it. Your smile is unique, and perfecting requires personalized planning and treatment. After a thorough examination, Dr. Hussong will consult with you to determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice for your situation. Made from specially-layered dental porcelain, veneers are thin shells that are custom-crafted to match the shape and appearance of your smile. After preparing your teeth by removing a small amount of tooth enamel, Dr. Hussong will carefully fit and bond your veneers to the front of your teeth, effectively giving them a new, discrete, and blemish-free face to present to the world.
